Carers Allowance/Pension Lump Sum
I am in receipt of Carers Allowance for looking after my husband. I am approaching my 60th birthday and have a private pension that is due to mature. There is a lump sum of £11000 approx, which I am considering taking about 8500 this tax year and the remainder next tax year. I do not have any other income besides the Carers Allowance. If I add the Carers Allowance that I have had this year (only since July) and the £8500 of the lump sum. That should keep me below the tax threshold. But would it affect the Carers Allowance for this financial year/next
